6:31 am
that is going on all day long. the coastal flood, high surf, i want to show you a graphic about the buy eyes, how high are these waves. they are especially high from say, th3 central portion of new jersey's atlantic ocean and down. nine to 11 feet. we are fining waves that are six to eight to 9 feet. this is quite a storm that we're finding out here and it is just after a day or two after summer, we will end up with, what feels like, certainly a nor'easter. may in the need all of the criteria but it is definitely a coastal storm out here and it is, wet, it is windy and good thing that my photographer andy is about 6-foot five because otherwise, facing this wind he would have a problem. so this is how it is out here. we will head back in the studio. >> yes, big show as we call him. >> oh, yeah. >> we call him the big show. >> indeed. >> lets check with katie tracking what is next in the storm and we are in the thick of it, right katie. >> that is what we expect out

6:33 am
this. rain amounts are going to total up one to 2 inches. the reason this isn't a major flood threat is because it has been so dry. if it comes through at all, at least it is coming after a dry stretch of days where we're not going to have major river flooding. look at this sustained wind we saw carol getting beaten up with that wind as well as wave heights, 20 to 25 miles per her sustained wind at the shore. little less inland but we will notice this. at best temperatures climb another four or 5 degrees. it is just that overcast out there obviously. don't expect it to warm up too much and expect to be sled down for one thing but you need the rain on a day lick this, vittoria, over to you. speaking of slow downs, we have a very serious overturn vehicle accident on i-95 southbound at philadelphia international airport. we will tell you all bit. what you are looking at here is the accident scene and if you are traveling southbound i-95 approaching the philadelphia international airport we have a very lengthy
